Weil Town Hall 1st Floor of Belfer Building of Harvard Kennedy School, 79 John F. Kennedy Street , Cambridge

Speaker: Daniel Schydlowsky, Former Robert F. Kennedy Visiting Scholar, DRCLAS (2009-2010)

Daniel Schydlowsky will discuss financial inclusion initiatives being implemented around the world with a particular focus on Latin America. The conversation will focus on describing the products that have been launched and analyzing why the same products have done well in some countries and failed in others. Mr. Schydlowsky most recently served as Steering Committee Chair of Alliance for Financial Inclusion (AFI) a network of 120+ policymaking and regulatory institutions from 90+ countries working together to accelerate the adoption of proven and innovative financial inclusion policy solutions. Previously in Peru he served as the head of the country's banking and insurance regulatory agency from 2011-2015 as well as Presidential Counselor for Economic and Financial Affairs President of the National Development Bank and one of seven Board Members of the Central Bank. Mr. Schydlowsky is credited with helping Peru develop a financial inclusion sector that is a model for countries around the world. Mr. Schydlowsky has taught at Harvard Kennedy School Boston University and the American University and holds a PhD in Economics from Harvard University.

The David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies is pleased to support this event part of the Harvard Association of Peruvian Students (HAPS) Speaker Series.
